You probably know that the most profitable and, therefore, cheap tickets for flights are" not direct "flights that make a landing for refueling in any third country. During the planning of the trip, it should be taken into account that, for example, the distance from Berlin or Amsteram to Colombo is over 8000 km. The aircraft at an average speed of 800 km / h will fly this distance in 10 hours. It is not possible for even the most hardy passenger to carry and tolerate such a long journey. If you consider that on arrival you, as an independent traveler, will not be met, then you still have some time to get to the place of the first stop.
Much more convenient and the most correct choice will be a flight with a landing at the transit airport for docking. For example, at the airport in Dubai or Abu Dhabi or Doha. This will not only save your money, but also allow you to relax in the transit hall of the airport. In Dubai, while waiting for a flight to Colombo or Mattala, you can spend quite a lot of time in the huge duty free zone. Shopping in duty free in Dubai is a pleasure from shopping for yourself, family and friends for every taste and financial prosperity. The same pleasant entertainment awaits you at the airports of Abu Dhabi, Doha and other places of connection. In favor of the choice of "flight with a transfer", you can add that the arrival of the aircraft to Sri Lanka, to Colombo airport is usually closer to dawn. As a rule, flights with transfer arrive around 4-5 am, when local buses are already starting to move. Direct flights arrive at 1-3 o'clock in the morning. At this time it is very difficult to find a taxi. In this case, you will need to get to the place of the first stop and a tuk-tuk. However, if you fly by direct flight, arrive at 1-3 o'clock in the morning, and you are greeted by a representative of the hotel or Lankarus on the pre-ordered transfer, then you can worry about nothing! At the same time, regardless of when you arrive, by direct or indirect flight to Colombo airport, to take you to the hotel for rest as soon as possible and with comfort - this is our pleasant task.
